Safety Information About Photosensitive Seizures A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these "photosensitive epileptic seizures" while watching video games. These seizures may have a variety of symptoms including: lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorien- tation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects. Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms — children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures. The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by sitting farther from the television screen, using a smaller television screen, playing in a well-lit room, and not playing when you are drowsy or fatigued. If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing. Other Important Health and Safety Information. The Xbox Instruction Manual contains important safety and health information that you should read and understand before using this software. Avoid Damage to Your Television Do not use with certain televisions. Some televisions, especially front- or rear-projection types, can be damaged if any video games, including Xbox games, are played on them. Static images presented during the normal course of game play may "bum in" to the screen, causing a permanent shadow of the static image to appear at all times, even when video games are not being played. Similar damage may occur from static images created when placing a video game on hold or pause. Consult your television owner's manual to determine if video games can be safely played safely on your set. If you are unable to fmd this information in the owner's manual, contact your television dealer or the manufacturer to determine if video games can be played safely on your set. Unauthorized copying, reverse engineering, transmission, public performance, rental, pay for play, or circumvention of copy protection is strictly prohibited.

Due to obvious similarities with the original "House of the Dead" case, AMS agents James and Gary are dispatched to put an end to the madness, and they seem to succeed... One day in 2002 Breaking news: "Bizarre occurrences are taking place within countries throughout the world. The national government is taking action to funnel all available resources to the task of discovering the cause of these occurrences and the origin of the evil creatures..." 2003 Plummeting toward collapse, the world teeters on the edge of oblivion.

The following is just a sample of what is out there... First aid kit mE HOUSE OF THE DEAD " III THE HOUSE or THE DEAD" Iff MONSTER FILE Ebitan is a revolting and perpetually rotting monster. Accordingly, his resistance is lower than other zombies. Ebitan resides in the water, suddenly leaping from the murky depths to attacl< his prey, mainly by biting them. Kageo is a mummified zombie, who prowls the darkest, most dreadful areas. He may look weak, but watch out for his fierce punch! IVIickey is a small zombie who wields knives in both hands. His method of attack is to leap down at his target from roof tops and other high places. Even if IVIickey throws both knives at you, there's no time to relax: He can produce an unlimited supply of knives from his hip holster. David was manufactured in great quantities. He is highly adaptable and thrives anywhere. He mainly attacks with his teeth. A new and improved version of Kageo with an iron mask and other armor. Because Ken's vulnerable face is shielded with a mask, he is an exceptionally difficult foe. Like Kageo, Ken lives in dark places, especially indoors. His main attack is a claw jab. Randy is a small, mask- wearing zombie. Don't be fooled by his small stature because Randy is a vicious little monster who can run along walls and ceilings as easily as on floors. Randy often roams with a friend. His preferred method of attack is a leaping death scratch. MONSTER FILE Despite being big and fat. Bob can move fast. His main attack is the drop kick, but he also throws barrels and oil drums. Johnny is a tough zombie to deal with, as he loves to rush at his prey, hiding his vulnerable face behind two axes. When he's not descending on you with terrifying speed, he will throw his axes with lethal accuracy from a safe distance. Be warned! Poor Peter is infested with giant parasitic worms and is relatively weak. He puts his worms to horrifyingly effective use though, for when his chest is wounded, the parasites will leave Peter's ribcage and leap at his attacker. Peter can also pack a mean punch. You'll know IVIax when you see him. He's the zombie crazily swinging two chainsaws about. He's also the biggest of all the zombies. Gregory is a bit of a show off, and there is nothing he likes to do more before finishing off his victims than to flourish his giant sword. You will find it hard to aim your gun at Gregory, because he uses his sword to defend as skillfully as he does to maim. A snakelike zombie who often infests areas in hordes. There are believed to be two colors of IVIurrer. IViurrer attacks by flying at his victims and gouging at their faces with his myriad teeth. flawless, instinctive accuracy. Don't go in unless you're strapped with the Mad Catz Blaster. Designed specifically for the Xbox, the Blaster features precision targeting, Auto- Fire, Auto-Reload settings and intense vibration.
